The Intragene-TM- process is a proprietary methodology developed by metallurgists and materials scientists at the Company and has been granted six U.S. patents as well as national phase patents based on two European patent applications and three Japanese patents. The Intragene-TM- process facilitates the ability to metallize, solder or braze a wide range of engineering ceramics, graphite and refractory metals.

The materials division product line consists of Intragene-TM–based sputtering target assemblies and electromagnet systems. The sputtering target assemblies have been sold into the rigid disk market since 1986 and are considered one of the most reliable such assemblies in the market today. Sputtering target assemblies are sold to end-users as source materials for coating other materials via a vacuum-based process called sputtering. Sputtering is employed as the primary method for depositing thin film functional and protective layers on rigid magnetic media (hard disks), as well as in many semiconductor-manufacturing operations. Once a target is made, it must usually be incorporated into the sputtering apparatus by joining it to a backing plate to make sound electrical, thermal and mechanical contact. The bonding of a target to the backing plate, which is usually made of copper, forms what is known as the 'bonded target assembly.'

NeoMetxâ„¢ technology offers metal surface coating to reduce friction, wear, and corrosion of mechanisms with direct metal-to-metal contact.

These patents are related to the NeoMetx(TM) technology, an essential part of the Company's business plan. The Company utilizes a proprietary technology called NeoMetx(tm) for its coating process.

NeoMetx(tm) technology offers metal surface coating to reduce friction, wear, and corrosion of mechanisms with direct metal-to-metal contact.  Conventional methods of metal coating generally consist of thermal spray of layers of material onto the surfaces to reduce friction and wear, which subsequently require maintenance as surface treatments often crack, chip, peel and delaminate.  

The NeoMetx(tm) technology creates an entirely new surface, which alters the molecular structure of the surface metal, by dispersing dry chemical compounds into the substrate of the treated piece.  The end product becomes part of the metal and is unlike conventional treatments where layers have to adhere to the surface.

Surface cleaning is a fundamental requirement for many industrial processes. It is also important for decontamination of objects. Traditionally, surface cleaning has been accomplished using solvent-based methods, technologies which have been available for more than 100 years. Increasing concerns about ground water and air pollution, greenhouse gases, and related health and safety issues have severely restricted the use of common volatile organic solvents, and even many of the recently-adapted, less hazardous chemical substitutes.  Plasmas have been used extensively in a wide variety of industrial and high technology applications, from semiconductor fabrication to coatings of reflective films for window panels and compact disks. Plasmas ranging in pressure from high vacuum (<0.1 mTorr) to several Torr are most common, and have been used for film deposition, reactive ion etching, sputtering and other forms of surface modification. The primary advantage of plasma cleaning is that it is an 'all-dry' process, generates minimal effluent, does not require hazardous pressures, and is applicable to a wide variety of vacuum-compatible materials, including silicon, metals, glass, and ceramics.

IPSCIO Record ID: 5328

License Grant
Pursuant to the Assignment Agreement entered for Patent No. 5,254,237 which is entitled, Plasma Arc Apparatus for Producing Thin Film Diamond Coatings, was granted on October 19, 1993 to Licensor, the inventor of the original titanium nitride and thin film diamond coating processes.
License Property
The Diamond Coating Process includes, but is not necessarily limited to, low temperature titanium nitride, cobalt nitride, chromium nitride, ferroelectric coatings, piezoelectric coatings, diamond hard coatings and diamond semi-conductor substrates.  Thus there has been disclosed a unique plasma arc deposition system for producing diamond, doped diamond or diamond-like coatings on a substrate by pulsed plasma technique.  These techniques do not require or produce temperature rise at the substrate, allowing normally temperature sensitive substrates to be utilized.  Typical of substrates which bond readily to the thin film diamond coatings without degradation are zinc sulfide (ZnS) or zinc selenide (ZnSe), which are useful in infrared windows or laser components.  The system disclosed and described can be used in the development of products and materials such as producing on junction diodes of crystalline carbon, so that rectifiers able to withstand temperatures in the neighborhood of 1000 to 1500 degrees Fahrenheit are also possible. Insulated gate field effect transistors that can handle high source to drain potentials and provide high gain without seriously loading the signal source, while operating at elevated temperatures beyond those achievable with silicon devices, can be produced with the system described.  Many other diamond-like integrated circuit chips, such as light emitting diodes or diodes used in solid state lasers are possible. Since thick diamond layers of good optical clarity can be produced by the process described herein, among the new devices that have become possible is an optical modulator that depends upon the polarizing effects of electric fields upon light beams through the crystal lattice.  This property leads to the entirely new family of high-power, opto-electronic coupling, modulating, scanning and/or sensing devices based upon diamond semiconductors.  Many other semiconductor devices that can utilize the enhanced properties of diamond-like films can be produced with the invention disclosed and described herein.
Field of Use
The rights granted apply for producing diamond-like coatings.

Under the terms of the license agreement, licensor is providing licensee with a non-exclusive license for use of its patents, EP 1 723 180, US 7,323,248, US 7,153,892 and US 7,498,362.

* Patent EP 1 723 180 pertains to a coating for metal objects and can be used on automotive parts and many other industrial articles. The coating is especially useful for metal objects with rubber or plastic parts that would be damaged by heat.

* Patent US 7,323,248 pertains to a coating for fiberglass panels. It applies to a wide variety of panels, especially those used in shopping malls, as it is resistant to sunlight and graffiti can be easily removed.

* Patent US 7,153,892 pertains to a coating for olefin plastics, such as car bumpers. A major benefit of the coating is its ability to adhere without a primer.

* Patent US 7,498,362 pertains to a coating for metal objects. It is very similar to the European patent, but for use in the United States.

A variety of consumer, scientific, and industrial products utilize composite materials, such as fiberglass, in a variety of shapes and forms. Coating such composite surfaces with solvent based coating can be problematic due solvent incompatibility and environmental issues stemming from evaporation of the volatile solvent. Also, such coatings can require thermal curing, resulting in the need for curing ovens, and the associated energy expenditure to operate them. U.S. Pat. No. 4,721,734 describes the use of one-part UV curable compositions incorporating aliphatic urethane acrylates and acrylate monomers to produce non-yellowing coatings. U.S. Pat. No. 5,733,607 describes the use of UV curable coating on fiberglass.

Field of Use
